I posted this in another thread/forum, but realized that this forum is probably the best place to post. I'm running a mac mini with a core 2 duo, 1.66 GHz w/2G RAM. OSX 10.4.9
yesterday I downloaded the new patch and installer (GPO KP220.127.116.11 Installer) and ran it. it installed the kontakt2 player and everything appeared to work fine, only problem was the kontakt2 player couldn't find the samples. I could still load the instruments using the "search in spotlight" function, but this is annoying and because of this I thought it might be best to reinstall. I trashed the Kontakt Player 2 folder and installed again.
after reinstalling, Kontakt Player 2 stopped working and I haven't been able to get it working again. the symptoms are as follows:
1) double clicking on KontaktPlayer2, it brings up the startup screen and says "Initializing User Interface".
2) the startup screen disappears, and the Kontakt player window never appears. here's the weird part: if I use expose to look at all my open windows, the window appears in expose. but if I click on it, it just disappears as soon as expose goes away.
3) I cannot quit KontaktPlayer2 via the menu at the top, or open the preferences or anything else. it appears to just be hung, and I have to force quit to exit the application. attempting to open the preferences causes all the other menu items to gray out.
I tried deleting the GPO Library directory and installing everything again from scratch. GPO seemed to install fine, although Kontakt Player 2 gave me the same bug. I noticed the GPO_Library_Part[1-3].nks files weren't in the "GPO Library" directory, so I copied them there manually. is it normal for these files not to be copied over during installation? everything I have read indicates they should be in the "GPO Library" directory.
I tried running the "PersonalOrchestra" executable in the "Garritan Personal Orchestra" directory, it loads the original kontakt player but obviously won't load any of the new samples.
at this point, GPO is not working at all, so any advice, including how to uninstall everything and start from scratch, is much appreciated. I get the feeling that trashing the "GPO Library","Garritan Personal Orchestra", and "Kontakt Player 2" directories is not enough. do I have to use some sort of uninstaller?
thanks in advance,
